In order to accommodate the transition, there will be a blackout of all activity in the financial system from approximately April 25th to May 3rd. Please take note that this will mean no purse prizes or invoice payments will be able to be completed during these dates.
In order to receive tournament prize purse payments as well, all NENY PGA Members will be required to create a registration account with Workday. Your previous direct deposit info will be transferred over however you must still create a registration account and PGA HQ will send a generated email in the coming week notifying you of this.

Did you know that funding generated through Patriot Golf Day helps fund annual PGA HOPE programming?
Please help support the most patriotic round of golf by registering your facility to support Patriot Golf Day which in turn helps fund Folds of Honor through education scholarships of military family members who have lost their loved one serving our country but also to PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) which offers free golf instruction to those who have served.
With Patriot Golf Day happening over Memorial Day Weekend (May 28 - 31), the time is now to start planning.
